Abstract

In our fast-forward culture, we have lost the art of eating well. Food is often little more than fuel to pour down the hatch while doing other work stuffs like web surfing, driving, walking. All of this speed takes a major toll on the health. Poor diet and sedentary behaviour have led to an increase in Obesity and lifestyle related disease and a huge rise in chronic medical conditions. In Ayurveda, Obesity falls under the heading of Santarpana rogas and the line of treatment should be to pacify vitiated Kapha,Medas,Agni and Vata. Among all the therapeutic procedures ,Vamana and Virechana require few hours to produce sodhana whereas Niruha basti takes only few minutes which substantiates its superiority over other sodhanas. A single case study was done to prove the efficacy of Poogatrim basti in the management of Obesity. Pooga being the main ingredient exhibiting lekhana property shows remarkable changes in terms of overall weight reduction and anthropometrical measurements of the subject.
